Add comment on:Actions in Chicago, Bay Area, Remember Murdered Palestinian Youth
Palestine Solidarity Project
Thursday, March 10th, 2011, 7am: Responding to an international call to action, Palestinian solidarity activists in Chicago renamed street signs on downtown street corners commemorating a Palestinian youth killed two years ago by the Israeli military. The activists used ladders just as morning rush hour commuters were starting to arrive in Chicago’s loop, and replaced street signs that read “Honorary Ben Gurion Way” with “Honorary Mehdi Abu Ayyash Way.” On Wednesday afternoon, activists in Berkeley unfurled a large banner over the highway reading, “Justice for Mehdi Aby Ayyash,” as part of the international events planned. More actions are expected to take place in the coming weeks in different locations around the world.
